Bodies across borders: oral and visual memory in Europe and beyond

5 June 2015, Practices Across Borders. Visuality, Aesthetics, Memory

05 June – 9:30 to 17:30

The workshop is aimed to discuss methodological approaches to the intersection between memory and mobility in visual works and contemporary artistic practices as one of the key concerns of the Bodies across Borders. Oral and Visual Memory in Europe and Beyond (BABE) Research Project. Invited researchers from different disciplinary backgrounds will offer the opportunity to focus on transversal issues such as: the relationship between different forms of visuality; connections and discontinuities between social memory processes and aesthetics; social practices involved in processes of production, circulation, exhibition, and reception of artistic works. In each session two invited scholars will present papers followed by responses from members of the Project Research team
